Syntax changes according to language?

Hi everyone,

 

I'm relatively new in Power Apps and I'm following a course on Microsoft Learn, but the values' or formulae syntax (mainly commas and punctuation) they give in exercises not always match. This said I'm in a french language environment, does this have any effect on the issue I'm having?

 

Thank you.

Hi @Hugo_CF ,

There is certainly different syntax for different languages - I struggle with it a bit trying to provide solutions.

Have a read of this guide - and you will see several are language dependant (for instance a comma (List Separator ,) is at times a semicolon; and a semicolon (Formula Chaining 😉 is sometimes two semicolons ;;

Also this more detailed explanation may be useful,

Hi @Hugo_CF ,

Actually, the functions supported within PowerApps app would remain the same in different region/language, only some of operators are language dependent, e.g. ',' , ';' and '.'.

Please check the following article for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/operators

 

For example, some regions of the world use a . (dot or period) as the decimal separator while others use a , (comma). If you want to get rid of the Language issue within your canvas app, you could consider configure your canvas app as a Global App.

 

More details about creating a global app in PowerApps, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/global-apps
